If true I guess they didn't learn their lesson with Pacman, although TO's "issues" are very different.

Who cares? As long as he's never, ever a Denver Bronco, I could care less about where he plays.

Yes, this thread was to take down the other thread about "denver being a sleeper for TO".

I really hope we dont get TO.

PS: You do care were he plays. Because TO @ TITANS means NO TO 4 DENVER

They can no longer break the bank for Haynesworth, so they'll have to break the bank for somebody else. Never mind that the Titans sucked when Haynesworth was out, because they didn't have any money to pay other good players...

That is not true this past year. Their defense still performed well when Haynesworth was out this year, which is why they wouldn't break the bank for him. They have a couple of young DTs that they think will fill the gap that Albert left behind.

And I think this article is bogus, Jeff Fisher's teams are always going to be a run-first team, so TO wouldn't fit in there, or in the locker room that Fisher has.

I dunno. The Titans just signed Nate Washington to a six year, $27 million, deal last Monday (including $9 million guaranteed.) But I suppose they'd have room for TO now that Haynesworth is gone.

Collins might be able to handle it, but it would surely put Vince Young back on suicide watch.

How many years does TO have left on his contract? If the Titans signed him, what would they have to pay him?

I don't think TO would like to play there. They're a run-run-pass if you have to-sort of team.

I'm not an expert, but I would think that since he was released outright (rather than traded), he's simply a free agent at this point and they could negotiate any kind of contract they want. I don't think anyone would be bound by the Dallas deal (except that the Cowboys do incur a $9 million cap hit, no matter what happens - - which says how badly they wanted to be rid of him.)

It would work. He would be extra nice to Kerry Collins. The last thing he would want to see is Vince Young back at starter. 45 catches for 800 yards would be a career year for a WR under VY at this point. Same reason I knew TO would never sign with ATL when Vick was at QB, despite his musings otherwise. Vick career ended Peerless Price, made Roddy White look lik a bust, and provided Ashlie Lelie with a good dose of career suicide as well.

TO would be a great 1 yr WR for tenn.

3 yrs ago (when he still had multiple impact yrs left) I thought TO should have just been a 1 yr hired assasin that bounced to a diff team each yr. It would have been the most interesting and probably most productive way to see his career conclude. With a little luck he might have gotten a SB ring or 2 along the way.

In Philly and Dallas, TO sort of established a pattern of performing well in his first year, and in not going mentally ballistic until after the season. I suppose that, at his age, a team that thought it was one wide receiver away from the super bowl could take a gamble and sign him to a one year deal, play it out, then cut and run before the toxic level in the locker room reached fatal proportions.

It would be like hiring an aging assassin for one last job, hoping you don't get caught doing it.

Someone will take the chance.

But I don't think Denver is in that position, and there's already enough to deal with here.

Ya I was just wondering. I hope that whoever signs him gets to negotiate his salary. Because the Demand is low for a 35 year old WR that is a locker room cancer (regardless of talent). Personally I hope he gets the league minimum.

Actually there is a waiver priority: any team can claim him on waivers - priority is worst to best record NFC, then worst to best record AFC. If a team wins a waiver claim, they're taking his contract, too. If all 31 teams pass, though - then his contract voids and he's a 100% free agent. That's what I call being "waived outta the league," (I call it that at least).

Guys, Owens won't be a cap buster, but I don't want him here any more than anyone else. I can't imagine anyone offering anything more than an incentive-heavy contract with a vet-minimum base salary,which, when you think about it, is probably the most explosive thing a team could do. Owens will blame anyone and everyone for not being able to reach those incentives. Even so, I can't see anyone offering him a big contract or up-front money, and that's if anyone even offers him a contract at all.

I honestly can't understand why any team would take him and his issues on!?

He was one of if not the best WR in the game, but he's lost a step, he drops way too many passes, has no upside and has a list of issues that is a mile long.

There are teams out there that probably wouldn't even be willing to take on BM, similar to Pacman character concerns are important to alot of teams. At least with them the GM's and coaches might stupidly think thhat they can succeed where others have failed and turn them into good guys and team players, but with TO no one could be so stupid as to think they could and even if they could the risk is too great for just a year or two more production (tops!).
